About Me:

I'm not big on dieting. I rarely try diets. I started the 50 Million Pound Challenge diet last week and in the first 4 days I lost 7 pounds. I've heard stories of diets that failed and the struggles of the people that dabble in many different diets only to lose little and gain even more back. I think I lucked out because I don't fall for fad diets and the Challenge diet is based on proper eating and building up your metabolism. I started the diet at 253 pounds.

The goals I'm working toward:

  • Fitting Exercise into my life
  • Healthier eating
  • Reaching my ideal weight

I haven't felt comfortable with my weight since:

I haven't felt good about my weight since 1990 when I had my first child.

My favorite healthy food:

Fruits and Vegetables

My guiltiest pleasure:

Stealing a bite from my families regular meals.

I'm inspired to live a healthy life because:

I realized that I'm getting older and it will more difficult to do this later in life. I want so badly to be a grandma and I want to be able to enjoy it without extra weight and health issues. I want to be able to pass this new lifestyle on to my grandkids.

Healthy habits that work for me:

  • Home Gym
  • Fat free flavored water instead of soda
  • Having a variety in my food choices

My favorite activity at the gym is:

I use a home gym and am able to work out whenever the mood strikes me nomatter what time of day it is.

The accomplishments I'm most proud of:

  • Losing 7 pounds in the first 4 days of my diet.
  • My children growing into wonderful morally sound young adults.
  • Taking in unwanted animals and caring for them the way they should be.
